Correct. Plus he doesn't even carry a gun so it's not as if he can use it...

Thought that too. I figured it was the bullet he was shot with when he died.

To be honest, ever since he grew boobs back in the '90s I've been suspicious his testosterone level is a little off.


Boobs? Do you mean that infamous Liefeld cover ?

Nope, in this story by Mark Gruewald, Cap was transformed into a woman. :-D

Was he completely transformed into a woman? I thought he had escaped before anything happened.

Mark Gruenwald really put Captain America through the Silver Age story line ringer near the end of his run: de-aging him, turning him into a woman, and the Were-Cap story.

Both he and Paladin were still really muscular, but both were drawn with breasts for a good part of the rest of the story if I recall correctly. So, I'd say that they were at least partially transformed.

Given the context of the issue, I think my favorite line from those panels was "Hey, what's that vibrating sound...?"
